Carol in MexicoAs the Assistant Planner for the Building & Planning Department, I oversee the processing, routing, and reviewing of all building permit applications as well as work directly with residents and their project teams as they progress through the planning and building processes. I find particular joy and satisfaction in assisting residents and interacting on a human level rather than an “applicant” level.

I have been with the Town for over 15 years now and feel that when one truly enjoys what they do that it ceases to become “work.” The setting, the community, my fellow staff, and the wonderful people that I serve do indeed make each day very special.

When I take a break from my desk, I am often pursuing my passions for travel, spiritual growth, hiking/nature, and what it means to me to live life fully. I have been told by many that I have a quirky sense of humor, which I wear as proudly as I did this huge, red sombrero on a trip to Mexico when I was 17.
